Sketch N Scrap challenge 132

2 Posts in one week in the Summer - What ???

I came back from camp early the other day to rain, 
so i did a few layouts with the inspiration 
being a sketch from Sketh~n~Scrap
Check them out here sketchnscrap

Here is there Layout Sketch


here is my take


again these are not some of my Finest layouts, but they are complete & off my desk.

The first page was from another sketch, 
you can see it below on the blog.
I also had a few more action shots 
so I created a third page.  
Here they are all together.


Hopefully I can find a bit more time to create soon.

Enjoy your summer!

Sketch~n~Scrap# 133

Hello All, 
I have been MIA with the 
nice weather finally arriving
way up here in the North.
We have enjoyed camp & have been working 
on some yard work when ever the rain holds out!

Today I came back from camp a bit early to tale a peek 
my scrapbooking desk, as always I am behind in my photos 
and wanted to get a few off my desk.

I wondered over toe Sketch~n~Scrap, 
you can find them here: sketchnscrap

Here is their latest challenge Sketch

Here is my take on it,


I think I would have liked some paint or spakle instead, 
but it's done and I have to find that mojo again!

I complete a second challenge, swing by to see it this week, 
I Love to make 2 page layouts with 2 sketches, come back to see!

Finally Back at It`

Spring is always busy here, 
and with out spring coming so late, I have 
been trying to get the trailer ready for camping,
Garett turned 19, and the yard needed some 
serious TLC as I lost most of my perennials in the ice storm!

So here is what I got done - 
this layout is from the Sketch Last Month at Sketch N Scrap 


Here is my Layout: 





I didn't get it loaded to the site in time, 
but I did get it up here for all of you!

I am still on my quest to use up my stash 
- warning this will be never ending!! - 

This time for inspiration I was flipping through my Pinterest

or link to her here somethingtoscrapabout

Well Here is another 2 page layout using 
October Afternoon Midway Collection

Crop Treat Bags

Well I was supposed to go to a crop recently & I ended up 
out of town to watch my son's play off Hockey games.

I was sad to miss my friends, but they are a great bunch 
an understood that these games were not something
 that would come around again soon.
I am so glad I did, was the first time since Christmas 
all three of my kids were together!

Can't imagine life without these crazies!
Also cant waite to have them all under one roof again!

Haven't had a picture of me up in awhile - 
this is myself & mt Husband with the oldest

these two have never been fighting sibling, 
they just did their own thing, 
but since Garett left they do talk more & have grown Closer.

well good thing I went to watch -
The two games after i left they captured the cup in a sweep! and are headed 
to the Trenton Ontario to play in the Dudley Hewitt Cup
& you bet I will be right there watching those games as well!


Back the the original topic!!
Here are the cute little spring Treat bags for crop.
We usually all make up little bags or boxes and exchange them.
Mine contained spring items and colours, forgot to take a picture of That!!



Well Hope you have an amazing Weekend!!

Stuck Sketches with Echo Park So happy Together

As I am sure you have read in the past posted, 
I am really trying to use up the stash and create with all of fit.  
No more holding onto that one amazing paper cause its Too pretty!
Just grab a kit & create!

So far so good!

With that being said I love to create from sketches!
I draw them out as dsee the items I should have, they move & morph,
but I think a great sketch is one that gets your to be creative!

The sketch I used last night was from Stuck !? Sketches!
you can find them here : http://stucksketches.blogspot.ca/

here is their sketch

and here is my layout using the Echo Park 
So happy Together Kit

Tis layout is of the Butterfly Conservatory In Niagara Falls 


I had these Brads from Simple Stories I am - and they fit so well!
& the enamel dots as well!

I don't usually use the alphas but I want to use all of these kits up.

I ended up doing a three page spread with a
3 different sketchs, so stop back tomorrow to see page 2!
adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
